This is the best parenting website imo. It has all sorts of categories of how to deal with different situations.http://www.ahaparenting.com Also on fb Positive Parenting: Toddlers and Beyond. I'm like a zombie tonight, otherwise I would write more advice but if you're interested both of those have been very helpful for me.

My husband and son play wrestle all the time. And it took a really long time to convince him it's only with daddy and only when daddy is paying attention (a few too many punches to the nuts or ear lol)




But yeah, it's tough cuz your LO is still pretty young. My son would hit and throw things ALL the time until after he turned 2. He just didn't get it before that.

OMG! I'm going through the same thing with Sawyer. It's constant! I have actually broken down and cried because I'm completely lost and have no idea what to do about it. It's so bad.



I'm sorry you're going through this. I feel your pain but have no advice. :(

I just don't understand Cassie. I'm trying so hard. I really want to help him but its just not getting through. I just gave him to josh because all I can do right now is cry. I just want to help him.

I wish I had advice for you :( I'm sorry it's happening. Do you think it's tension because of the new baby? Have any routines or habits changed lately?

I have no idea. Nothing's really changed in our routines. The eating and talking thing isn't anything new. He's always had issues. But this sleeping thing is new. I have never regretted co sleeping till a couple nights ago. And the hitting OMG. It's terrible. I just feel like I'm failing him.

You are not failing him at all, he's a toddler. :) Just keep being consistent.

I know. It's just all of these issues are overwhelming me. If it was just the hitting or just the sleeping, I could deal. But it's not eating, not talking, not sleeping, and hitting all at the same time. It's just really starting to wear me down

Between Jackson's eczema, Jace's ADHD, and Sawyer's temper I am stretched so thin and emotionally drained. I feel like a terrible mother. Jackson is up all hours of the night crying and digging at his skin so he just cries all day cause he's tired and miserable. And you can't even sit next to Sawyer without him digging his nails into you, head butting, or screaming as loud as he can in your face. He beats the shit out of Jackson, like legitimately beats Jackson to where I have to pull Sawyer off of him. It's ridiculous. I try to do the timeout thing and then explain to him why he got in trouble but its a never ending cycle, it just starts all over again and soon as it ends.

Ugh that sounds so stressful :(



Yeah AJ has been way too aggressive lately. When I take him with me to go babysit, he hits the boy over EVERYTHING. And there's no point in time outs. He's not really talking so he doesn't get it. All I can do is redirect but then he just goes right back to hitting. He headbutts all the time too. Busted me in the lip more than a couple times.



I want him to EAT. I'm almost positive that's why he won't sleep soundly. I'm sure it's because he's hungry but he just won't eat. At all. A couple bites here and there. I'm scared by his next appt his dr will think I'm starving him.



I just don't know how I'm going to deal with him with a newborn. I'm really hoping something will change in these next three months. Really really hoping.

He won't eat anything or is just picky? Sawyer rarely eats. I was looking at him today and he seems so skinny to me. I also think that's why he is fussy a lot cause he's f**king hungry but is so damn picky he refuses to eat anything remotely good for him. I try to give my kids healthy/healthier food and honestly don't know where he got his "sweet tooth" but the fact that he prefers to eat shit and not actual food drives me batshit and I won't feed him crap just so he eats...I feel that's just as bad as not eating. I've been looking into ways to disguise substantial food in "sweet" form to see if that interests him more.

Yeah he'll go to town on fruit or sweets. Anything else, he won't touch. He's not eating nearly enough and isn't losing weight but is dropping percentage-wise. He was 80% around a year and was 60% at 18 months and I can tell he's getting skinnier. I just don't know what to do because I can't force it down his throat or keep him locked in a high chair all day.

Don't worry about the not eating, not talking thing. Isaiah went through the same thing around that age. I would first address the hitting thing. Then try to get him on a normal schedule. Then after that, work on getting him to sleep in his own bed. Baby steps.



<3 hope it gets better for you love.
